CULVER, OR -- Crews made major progress containing the fire burning near Lake Billy Chinook. The Akawana Fire has charred 2,094 acres, but cooler temperatures and calmer winds helped firefighters gain ground over the weekend. It's now 80% contained.

 

All evacuation notices were officially lifted late Sunday morning; no structures were lost. The fire was first detected June seventh, presumably started by lightning that moved across the area.
